A Prayer They Need — Third Place

by Inda Piroli

Inda Piroli is a student at Lezha Academic Center, Albania.

A prayer they Need…

Many are waiting on the border,
Easily crushed and pushed away,
Needing nothing but order,
Nursing their children with hay,
Oh, God! Please be alive!
Night has come and never gone by!
Immortal is the sound of fear,
Trigger-pulling, if you’re not there,
Each asking for a prayer, a MENNONITE prayer!
